Limit disruption and pollution of natural water ﬂows by managing stormwater runoff.
Have a stormwater management plan in place over the performance period that is designed to mitigate runoff from the site. Mitigated stormwater is the volume of precipitation falling on the site that does not become runoff by leaving the site via means of uncontrolled surface streams, rivers, drains, or sewers. This mitigation can be accomplished through a variety of measures including perviousness of site, stormwater management practices (structural and non structural), capture of rainwater for reuse or other measures.
- SS Credit 5.1: Have measures in place on the site that mitigate at least 25% of the annual stormwater falling on the site. (1 point)
- SS Credit 5.2: Have measures in place on the site that mitigate at least 50% of the annual stormwater falling on the site. (1 point)
